Make Cat 5 Ethernet Cable (STP/UTP)
By Eddie Orlowski in Fix it or Kick it (Computer Help)

This will give you the color coordination to make a cat 5 ethernet cable stp or utp with rj 45 connectors.

Now keep in mind when making these cables keep the pins up on the rj 45 connectors towards you.

This is for both straight and cross over cabling:

Straight Cable,

white/orange, orange, white/green, blue, white/blue, green, white/brown, brown. (this is for internet bound ethernet).

Cross over Cable,

white/green, green, white/orange, blue, white/blue, orange, white/brown, brown. (this is for computer to computer on 1 network, no internet).
